Connect waypoints

It would be great to be able to "connect" waypoints, especially for translocators, to be able to find the other end way more easily on the map, because that can become pretty confusing after a while if you found a lot of them.
It could be a visual thing on the map (for example click on a waypoint with LMB and the connected ones are shown a bit bigger so they are easier to find - that could be really nice for all sorts of things), and/or when you open a waypoint you could get a link to the connected one that directly sends you to that area on the map, so you don't even have to look for it.

Some level of connection between waypoints would be a great feature.

I use the Campaign Cartographer mod and it puts something like @(x, y) in the description for translocator.  If that text was considered some form of markup, it could be displayed as a link that when clicked would re-center on the map view on the location (x, y).  The link would make map traversal much easier without the need for adding new graphical elements to the map.  Either way, lines on the map or "re-center the map @(x,y)" links would both assist in navigation.

Lines would look good but adding controls to allow a human to draw a line on a map might be a real hassle. Re-center links might be easier and a more generic solution that would support other use cases that nobody has thought about.  Without painful UI work these would probably not be used by a human and would only be there to support mods.

Hi Popper! ^^ Yep, you can use numbers, but if you find as many as Nim does, it's hard to keep track and you would have to write it down somewhere or you might use the same number twice or skip numbers and you still have to find where the other one is on the map. You can also use different icons or colors, but that is also limited, and you can add the coordinates to the marker name, but it still gets pretty chaotic pretty easily - especially on a multiplayer server - and you have to find the matching marker on the map by moving around with the mouse or keys and when the map gets bigger and bigger and there are more and more translocators everywhere, it just gets confusing. o_O

Thinking about it, also being able to zoom out a bit more would be helpful, to simply see more of the map when you look for a marker farther away.
